A caller asked if Howard thought Adam Lambert didn't win "American Idol" because he was a gay man and Howard speculated that Adam Lambert didn't win "American Idol" because he was a gay man: "And he's a flamboyant gay man...I believe it was a landslide for the guy who wasn't gay."

Artie laughed: "I can understand that a homophobic guy doesn't want gays in the military, but no gays in 'American Idol'?"
